Let the Countdown to Benedict Cumberbatch Being Announced as Doctor Strange Begin...


I see your MTV video where Benedict Cumberbatch claims he won't be playing Doctor Strange because of "scheduling conflicts" and raise you this Comic-Con coverage from E! Online:

Here's What Benedict Cumberbatch Had to Say About the Rumor That He's Playing Doctor Strange

Benedict Cumberbatch is experiencing a lot of firsts: It's his first time visiting Comic-Con. It's his first time voicing an animated character in a children's movie. And it will (maybe...) be the first time that Marvel announces Benedict is joining their roster of superheroes.

5 Seconds of Summer's Massive Block Party on Jimmy Kimmel + Track by Track Album Review

Australian pop-rock band 5 Seconds of Summer took to the streets last night for Jimmy Kimmel Live as the main attraction of a outdoor block party that drew hundreds of fans. The band performed three songs: their singles "She Looks So Perfect" and "Amnesia" as well as a lesser known song on their new album, "Beside You."

Beside You
Track by Track

Best televised performances I've seen from them yet tbh, especially of She Looks So Perfect. Beside You is one of my favorite tracks on the album too. Michael looks homeless (though still somehow better than normal).

For those who care/are interested in hearing the album without buying it, there's Spotify streaming links at the source for the Track by Track. I didn't want them to clog up the post and make it slow.

One of Marvel’s Avengers Turns to Sign Language

The fight for justice can wear on the body. That is something that Clint Barton, the member of Marvel’s Avengers known as the archer Hawkeye, is going to have to learn to cope with. In issue No. 19 of “Hawkeye,” which arrives in stores on July 30, the writer Matt Fraction and the artist David Aja show the aftereffects of a battle that has left their hero with profound ear damage.

The story strives to connect readers with what he is experiencing: when he can’t hear, the word balloons on the page are blank. The comic also makes extensive use of sign language, but provides no key to interpreting them. “If nothing else, it’s an opportunity for hearing people to get a taste of what it might be like to be deaf,” Mr. Fraction said.

Joan Rivers defends Israel, slams Selena Gomez in the process

Joan Rivers went off on an epic and emotional rant in defense of Israel while talking to paparazzi at LAX Airport in Los Angeles on Thursday.
“If New Jersey were firing rockets into New York, we would wipe ’em out,” she tells the cameraman.
Rivers continues, “I don’t want to hear anymore, ‘Oh, we’ll do a partial truce.’ The Palestinians… you cannot throw rockets, and not expect people to defend themselves.”
Asked about civilian casualties among Palestinians, Rivers fires back, “Then don’t put your goddamn things in private homes! I’m sorry, don’t you dare put weapons stashes in private homes!”
When the cameraman asks Rivers where civilians should go, she replies, “I don’t care! They started it. You’re all insane! They started it!”
Rivers slams media coverage of the conflict, declaring, “The BBC should be ashamed of themselves. And CNN should be ashamed of themselves. And everybody… stop it already.”
When the paparazzo mentions Selena Gomez’s support for Gaza, Rivers sarcastically says, “Oh, Selena Gomez! Oh, yeah, that college grad. Oh, well, if Selena said that… let’s see if she can spell ‘Palestinians.’”

Guillermo del Toro Brings Crimson Peak to Comic-Con

You can't have Comic-Con without Guillermo del Toro and this year he brought his own private haunted mansion.

At the Legendary Pictures booth del Toro has set up a snow-covered gate into a small mini-haunted house experience that was designed by the director himself. There's a video below of writer Germain Lussier walking through the haunted hall and the details are astounding. The voice you hear narrating is del Toro's.

Jeff Bridges' Best AMA Answers: On 'The Big Lebowski,' 'Iron Man,' Bagels and Love


Reddit AMAs with actors can be a mixed bag: The quick-response format can reveal some satisfying answers, but leave you desperate for a follow-up answer that never comes. And sometimes the subject does not play ball at all, failing to give even the illusion of caring. (Witness the great Woody Harrelson AMA debacle of 2012.) But it is rare that you get a session as rewarding as yesterday’s back and forth with Jeff Bridges, there to promote his upcoming adaptation of the YA classic, The Giver. Bridges wasn’t gossipy — no trashing of past movies or co-stars — but he seemed incredibly engaged with the whole process. Whether he was asked about Iron Man, The Big Lebowski, his thoughts on the secrets to marriage, or his favorite foods, he was equally thoughtful, detailed, sensitive and revealing in his answers. In true Bridges tradition, it was like a sit-down with a Zen master, revealing the secrets to making a blockbuster and the perfect bagel. Here are his most fascinating answers. (Many bonuses for Lebowski fans.)

Aw, I love Jeff Bridges and I remember his dad, Lloyd too.  Such a great family!

Katy Perry tops YouTube's list of 2014's most-played music videos

YouTube recently compiled a list of the platform’s most-played music videos worldwide for the first half of 2014. It’s sort of an unofficial chart for the most popular songs of the year so far for the entire globe. Unsurprisingly, songs with a World Cup hook have done particularly well.

Katy Perry’s ridiculously popular “Dark Horse” tops the list, predictably, with a staggering 485 million plays. Shakira takes both second and third place with her Rihanna-featuring “Can’t Remember to Forget You” and the World Cup-themed version of her single “La La La,” with the official 2014 World Cup song “We Are One (Ole Ola)” right behind it. Iggy Azalea’s summer-dominating “Fancy” and Frozen‘s “Let It Go” official sing-along video both made the list, but the come behind the Chainsmokers’ calculatedly viral “#Selfie,” which has racked up over 183 million views.

Full Top 10

Cristiano Ronaldo and Lil Wayne set to team up after rapper starts his own sport management company

Cristiano Ronaldo looks set to become the first client of rapper Lil Wayne’s sports management company after reports claimed he is on the lookout for a representative to “handle his affairs”.

The Ballon d’Or winner didn’t enjoy the best of World Cup’s during the summer as his Portugal side were knocked out in the group stages, but he did have reason to celebrate come the end of the season after guiding Real Madrid to the tenth Champions League success in their history.

The World Cup saw football (or ‘soccer’) sweep the United States, largely thanks to the impressive showing in Brazil by Team USA, and it now seems that Ronaldo is ready to tap into that interest in order to expand the global brand that is CR7.

According to celebrity news website TMZ.com, Ronaldo will link up with his friend Lil Wayne – real name Dwayne Michael Carter Jr. – after the New Orleans rapper started his own sports management company.

Lil Wayne is known to be a keen basketball fan, leading to his decision to start up the company that will reportedly “handle Ronaldo’s sports management affairs in the United States”.

It goes on to suggest that Lil Wayne will work with PolarisSports, who has affiliations with GestiFute and CAA and work with Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes.

Letter from Tom Hiddleston to Joss Whedon Leaks, Is as Lengthy and Overly Grateful as You'd Expect

"The Avengers" is one of the highest-grossing movies of all time.
The 2012 Disney film has made more than $1.5 billion at the box office; however, the film's success was not always imminent.

When Joss Whedon initially met with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige to look over a script by "The Incredible Hulk" screenwriter Zak Penn, he said they needed to "pretend this draft never happened."

After impressing Feige with a five-page treatment for what he thought "The Avengers" should look like, Whedon proceeded to work on a new script for the film.

It took several drafts and collaboration with the cast including actor Tom Hiddleston, Marvel Studio's team, and other Marvel franchise directors to get it approved.

According to "Joss Whedon: The Biography," in stores Aug. 1, Hiddleston, who plays antihero Loki in the film, wrote Whedon a heartfelt email after reading Whedon's draft for the first time.

We've published Hiddleston's letter in full along with Whedon's response with permission from Chicago Review Press below.

Vidya Balan’s Kahaani to be remade in English as Deity by YRF

The film will be remade in English for a global audience

Vidya Balan starrer Kahaani was quite a hit among the audiences, so much so that it was remade down South. Now we hear that the film will be remade in English by YRF Entertainment. The English remake of Kahaani will be directed by The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo director Niels Arden Oplev. Jose Rivera (The Motorcycle Diaries) and Richard Regen (Tehran) have written the script.

Kahaani director Sujoy Ghosh said, “It’s an incredible step by YRF. Years back Aditya Chopra had said he wanted to make ‘Kahaani’ for a global audience… I thought he was kidding. But obviously not. YRF has left no stone unturned on making the English version. The new script by Jose Rivera and Richard Regen is perfectly suited for the Western audience and what I am really looking forward is to see Niels direct this version. I am sure he will bring a unique vision to the Western version. I am totally excited about this!”

Uday Chopra, CEO of YRF Entertainment said, “Niels is the perfect director to transform the appeal of Kahaani to DEITY.” Niels about Deity, “DEITY will be a compelling and exciting thriller with complex and interesting characters. A neo-realistic style to story and images will take the audience deep into Calcutta’s many different levels. A fascinating clash between American and Indian culture.”

Deity will be a thriller about an American woman who goes to Kolkata in search of her missing husband. As truth start unraveling, she will find herself at the centre of a dangerous conspiracy. The film’s production will start in February 2015, and will be shot in Kolkatta.


I'm sick so I made a Bollywood post. Can Kahaani work without Vidya?

The last interview: Peaches Geldof on fame, heroin and Elliot Smith

One of the first things I told her was that I knew very little of her back story, and Peaches laughed in a fulsome way that I quickly came to see as an essential part of her personality. There was something overflowing about her. An avidity, combined with enormous mental energy. I think the laughter was partly surprise — intentionally, I hadn’t done my homework — and partly relief. ‘The worst thing,’ she told me, ‘is shaking someone’s hand and realising full well they have a completely preconceived notion of who you are. They know your whole life! And you know nothing about them. It’s an imbalance that’s frightening.’

This was, microcosmically, Peaches’s burden, the disconnect between the script foisted on her by others — sometimes accurate, sometimes not — and the alternative, fuller life she was struggling to write for herself. The British press told her who she was, and it was her job, almost daily, to agree or disagree.

ESPN's Stephen A. Smith: Do Not Provoke a Man Into Beating You

ESPN's Stephen A. Smith found himself in hot water on Friday after what he said on "First Take" offended viewers -- including his own colleague, Michelle Beadle.

In the video above, you'll see Smith's rant after Ravens running back Ray Rice was suspended for two games (he knocked out his fiance in an elevator and was caught on surveillance attempting to drag her out of it). Here's what got Beadle and others angry after he said "we know you have no business putting your hands on a woman:" (Here's the full transcript)

"What I've tried to employ the female members of my family, some of who you all met and talked to and what have you, is that again, and this what...I've done this all my life, let’s make sure we don’t do anything to provoke wrong actions. Because if I come, or somebody else come, whether it’s law enforcement officials, your brother or the fellas that you know, if we come after somebody has put their hands on you, it doesn't negate the fact that they already put their hands on you. So let’s try to make sure that we can do our part in making sure that that doesn't happen.”

On Thursday, the actor and his lawyer, G. Robert Gage, declined to comment as they left court amid a swarm of cameras and microphones. Shortly afterwards, he was pictured leaving his hotel wearing his usual scruffy uniform of a t-shirt, jeans and combat boots as he headed to the airport.

Former WWE Champion Daniel Bryan is a bona fide bad ass ... chasing down a burglar on foot, then locking him in a submission hold until cops arrived.

Daniel and his wife Brie Bella had just come home Thursday night when they saw 2 men on their way out of their house. The burglars dropped the stuff they were stealing and hightailed it down the street.
D.B. gave chase ... the bad guys had a big head start but the champ caught up with one of them and locked him in a rear naked choke for 5 minutes until cops arrived.

Daniel's feat is all the more impressive because the guy he caught is facing kidnapping charges in another case.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch ... Daniel's wife Brie retrieved the loot the guys were in the process of stealing, including a bracelet that belonged to the wrestler's recently deceased dad.

The second guy is still on the loose, but there's one less bad guy on the streets, thanks to D.B.

Khloe and French Montana holding back on sex this Ramadan

Khloe Kardashian and French Montana are officially “out.” The odd couple recently spoke with Angie Martinez at her new post over at Power 105.1 and their interview was quite telling. According to French, they were actually hooked up by Diddy one night at the studio.

“Khloe cool as hell, man. It was Puff. Puff was the one that put us together. I was like Puff –I forgot how it went,” he explained.
“It was me, Gabby, Ross, Puff, Meek. Everybody was in the studio. Scott [Disick, Kourtney’s husband] was there. Scott was drunk. I was, ‘like I got a party tomorrow’ and everybody was like, ‘we all coming.’ She [Khloe] was like ‘Hell yeah, I wanna go.’ Next day Puff was like ‘hit her’ to come to the party.”

French also addressed the fact that he’s currently observing Ramadan, which means no eating until sunset, no smoking, no drinking and no sex—something that Khloe seemed to get a kick out of.

“No sex. [It’s] so fun [said sarcastically]. That’s why he’s wearing all white. He’s so pure and holy. … He’s virginal.[Laughs]“
Khloe was also quick to defend her relationship with French against critics.
“People are gonna comment no matter what. If I dated the most clean-cut perfect guy, they’re gonna comment. That’s just the way it is. If I’m having fun and if I like this kid, no one else should care, they’re not f****g him. [Laughs] Our maybe they are, I don’t know.”

Harry Lloyd talks 'Manhattan'

WGN America will debut its second original scripted series, "Manhattan," on July 27. In preparation for the 1940s period drama, which surrounds the scientists tasked with developing the atomic bomb in New Mexico -- and their in-the-dark families -- Zap2it caught up with the cast for a Q&A about their new show. Up next is Harry Lloyd, who plays British physicist Paul Crosley, a member of the team working to develop the atomic bomb.

Zap2it: Which is more challenging: '40s fashion or nuclear physics?
Lloyd: Both very simple for me -- I just have to wear them both and look like I own them.

What did you actually know about The Manhattan Project before you auditioned for the role?
Pretty much zero. Don't think I even knew the bomb was built here in the desert...

If you could hang out with a real Manhattan Project scientist, who would you pick?
Hmm... Oppenheimer for a martini, a hike with Feynman, some work with Ulam.

Marry/kiss/kick to the curb: Einstein, Oppenheimer, Fermi.
You have to marry Einstein. And I had a martini with Oppie, so kick him and kiss Enrico. He's Italian, after all.

What are your favorite and least favorite things about working on a period piece?
Favourite is the research -- you can build this world before you step into it. Least favourite -- sticky hair.

What's one thing about this time in history -- or The Manhattan Project, specifically -- that you didn't know before you started working on the show?
EVERYTHING! Most fascinating fact for me is that they discovered nuclear fission, and therefore the very real possibility of a bomb, in 1939, as war broke out across Europe

One Direction's You & I Video Shoot Causes Tourism Boost For Clevedon Pier

One Direction filmed their You & I music video at Clevedon Pier in March, and their appearance has apparently led to a tourism boost for the pier located in Somerset. It seems that young fans turn up to the pier in hopes of retracing the steps that the guys of One Direction did for their music video.

Pier mistress Linda Strong spoke to the Bristol Post about the boost in tourism.

“The average age of our visitors must have dramatically dropped as hundreds and hundreds of youngsters visit wanting to be captured on film and fans have been retracing 1D's steps, shooting copycat videos,” she revealed. "Our most frequently asked questions are about 1D's visit.”

Kendra Wilkinson -- Closing Down The Club ... Hank Nowhere In Sight

Kendra Wilkinson's marriage to Hank Baskett is officially on the rocks ... as were all the drinks last night at Warwick, where Kendra was partying until early this morning -- minus Hank.

Kendra spent the evening/morning drinking and dancing with a large group of friends at the owner's table ... sources tell TMZ.

The photo clearly shows her behind the velvet ropes in the middle of a rocking dance floor.

Reports of the couple's impending demise have been well documented after Hank's alleged affair with transsexual model Ava London.

Kendra hasn't worn her wedding ring in public for weeks ... and Hank continues to beg for forgiveness on a daily basis.

The chances of them getting back together keep looking worse and worse ... despite the two giving birth to their second child just two months ago.


Hank has continued wearing his wedding ring recently, but Kendra took hers off weeks ago.

Taylor Swift is known for her impeccable style these days, but the pop star reveals she wasn't always so sartorially savvy.
'Everyone's got some embarrassing photo. My high school pictures are, like ... it's tragic,' the 24-year-old says in a video interview with Teen Vogue's Andrew Bevan.
She adds: 'My style forever was going to be cornrows. I took my school picture with the cornrows. It really thrust me into understanding what it's like to not have anywhere to sit in the cafeteria.'
